This autumn, guests are invited to take a culinary wine tour around the world with the return of Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro’s Wine & Dine Mondays series. Designed to both educate and entertain, the series is aimed at oenophiles of all levels. “Wine & Dine Mondays is about wonderful wines, creative food and good friends,” says Cecilia Rait, proprietress and wine director of Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro. Diners are invited to visit various wine regions without leaving the comfort of their seats, as Cecilia and Tracy Burgis of M.S. Walker act as virtual tour guides, moving from region to region explaining the history, curiosities and nuances of each selection. Each four-course dinner showcases four wines as well the culinary artistry of Beacon Hill Hotel & Bistro’s Executive Chef Josh Lewin, whose dishes are designed to complement each featured wine. On Monday, October 29th, 2012 at 7:00PM guests are invited to “Ciao from Northern Italy." During this educational dinner guest will sample wines from the Piedmont, Veneto and Alto Adige regions, which produce most of Italy’s high quality wines.
This intimate adventure is set in communal seating to encourage conversation, laughter and fun. For $60.00 per person (tax and gratuity not included), guests are treated to four wines, a full four-course dinner and Cecilia's and Tracy's good cheer, humor and expertise. Reservations are encouraged as most nights sell out well in advance.
